I've had fun this morning sifting through a lot of old advertising videos on YouTube. Since Afton Station is a former D-X service station which is now a Packard showroom museum, I've decided to share these two. Then, I added a couple of interesting videos relating to Afton, too. So, when you have about 15 minutes to spare, sit back and enjoy!
The first is a (Circa) 1967 D-X Gasoline ad. Win a thousand dollar jackpot in a scratch-off game at your friendly local D-X dealer! The actors playing both the attendant and the customer look familiar, but I can't place them. Any ideas?
Next, the latest innovation by the Packard Motor Car Company! Push Button Drive! "What a wonderful convenience!" "Like taking off for a trip to the moon!" By 1955, when this was aired, Packard was just a couple of years away from its demise. What a shame to lose such a great, well-made vehicle. The push buttons, however, never caught on.
Next, since we're talking about Afton, Oklahoma here, I present a totally random video I found on YouTube -- Melvin Birks Makes Biscuits. He's an Afton resident, and I think this video will make you smile. . . and make you hungry, too! I don't know Mr. Birks, but I hope to meet him some day!
